ww2dbaseThe 10.5 cm hrubý kanon vz. 35 field guns were built by Czech weapons firm Skoda Works. Upon German annexation of Czechoslovakia in 1939, these weapons were taken into German service under the new designation 10.5 cm K 35(t). Yugoslavia also purchased a number of them before 1939; when they were placed into German service, they were re-designated the 10.5 cm Kanone 339(j). They were particularly used for coastal defense duties. Germany provided 36 of them to the Slovak puppet government.
